Nurturing muscles requires protein for strength, water for mobility, and grease for reflecting the sun’s puny rays right back at it. Focus on your physique with today’s Groupon to Balance Fitness in Walled Lake. Choose between the following options:
- For $35, you get a three-month membership (a $108 value), plus a tanning session (a $6 value) and yoga class (a $7 value; a $121 total value).
- For $35, you get a 60-minute massage (a $70 value).
Balance Fitness’s curve-sculpting contingent counts muscle-molding machines and tendon-unwrapping massage therapists among its ranks. A three-month membership grants access to treadmills, elliptical machines, and free weights, all flanked by time-stealing televisions and pyramid-building cheerleaders. Tuesday-night yoga class gives muscles meditative stretching sessions, and pallid pelts perk up after 30 minutes of face time with the gym’s tanning bed. Those looking to unfurl rippling muscles can experience a remolding session from the gym’s massage therapist. One solid hour melts away tension, clenched knots, and a week’s worth of sidewalk rage.
Though not included in today's Groupon, parents using the club facilities can park their moppets at the kids club, where they can play games under the watchful eyes of CPR-, first aid-, and high-five-certified staff and live video cameras ($2 for the first hour, $1 for each additional child, $0.50 per additional hour per child).
